Holton Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Holton, or Holetuna

In the time of Henry VI., belonged to a branch of the Fastolffes, of Caistor, in Norfolk; and was afterwards sold to the Mannocks, of Gifford's Hall, in Stoke, who sold the estate to Sir John Williams; it now belongs to Sir Joshua Rowley, of Tendring Hall, Bart.

This lordship became early invested in the family of Boyton, and William de Boyton held it in the early part of the reign of King Edward I.

In 1310, Robert de Reydon, of Raydon, in this hundred, had a charter of free warren in this parish; with Stratford, Hintlesham, Wherstead, and Woolverstone.

Anne Candler, a Suffolk cottager, author of a small paraphrase on the 5th chapter of the 2nd book of Kings, the History of Joseph, the Life of Elijah the Prophet, and several other poetical pieces, died in this parish, Sept. 15, 1814, aged 74 years.

CHARITIES. Here are several small benefactions, given for the benefit of the poor of this parish; and a charity school, established and endowed by the exertion, and through the pecuniary aid of the Rev. Stephen White, a late rector: 25 scholars, 16 boys and 9 girls, are instructed as free scholars, in reading, writing, and arithmetic; and the girls are taught needle work. Mr. White conveyed, by deed, a piece of land, which produces a rental of 6 per annum, to be applied towards raising premiums, to be given annually to the children of the said school, or persons brought up in the school, bringing certificates of good behaviour, in service or apprenticeship, under such regulations as may be judged most conducive to the encouragement of honesty, industry, and Christian behaviour.1

1 This we have no hesitation in pronouncing a most judicious bequest, and worthy the attention of those who have the management of similar institutions, with a surplus fund, and demur as to the best method of applying it.
